Director Reel 2019

Jason Perini


Jason has a flare for comedic, short-form storytelling. His award winning work has screened online and at international film festivals including Cannes and Tropfest. Jason has completed his directorial debut feature film ‘Chasing Comets’ which was released in Australian cinemas in August 2018.

You may also recognise him from such televisions series as 'Top of the Lake China Girl', 'Underbelly', theatre productions with NIDA and Belvoir Street Theatre and ads for brands such as Sony, The Wallabies, Tooheys, Samsung and many more. With all this talent Jason is uniquely suited to directing performance, to create tension where needed and paying off the audience with impeccable comedic timing.

If you could find anything at sea, what would it be?
A small island with a single palm tree and Elvis sitting there leaning against the trunk. Then, when he sees me approaching he calls out and says "What took you so long?"
